Bottle from Table and Vine. Pours out a very dark blackish brown. Thin head fades quickly. Sweet and roasty aromas and flavor. Smooth roasty body. Good balance, but still rather thick and sweet. beertholomeus (1814) - California, USA - JUN 22, 2016
Pours a dark brown, almost black color with a short lived khaki head. Sugar, syrup, caramel, vanilla, light coffee and toast aroma.Vanilla, sugar, coffee, caramel, toffee and toast flavors. Medium light body and moderate carbonation. Sweet vanilla and licorice finish. Super watery and pretty bland overall. You have to really look for the flavors. FROTHINGSLOSH (8308) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 31, 2016
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a thin almost black color with a trace soapy brown head that faded and left no lacing. The aroma was vanilla and brewed coffee. The flavor was vanilla cream, brewed coffee, cocoa and hint of wood and dark fruits. Medium length finish. Medium body and smooth but undercarbonated. Feels like its close to being really good but keeps falling short in every category. rodenbach99 (4678) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - APR 28, 2016

Comment: EBF 2016.
Portrait: Un liquide brun. Un nez de chocolat, café, de vanille et grain rôtis. Une bouche similaire avec des saveurs de chocolat et fruits rouges. Une texture plutôt aqueuse gâche la sauce.

Bottled. Black colour, small brown head. Aroma is espresso, wood and some mild dusty and a bit earthy notes. Flavour is espresso, vanilla, some toffee and mild liquorice. Lovely for the sweet tooth. bavarian81 (163) - Massachusetts, USA - FEB 15, 2016
Poured a dark brown with virtually no head. Smells of coffee and vanilla which I guess shouldn’t be surprising, hence it being described as a "vanilla espresso" porter. Super thick body and tastes sweet and roasty. jkwood04 (5472) - Connecticut, USA - FEB 14, 2016
12oz bottle in a tulip. Pours dark brown with a beige head. Aroma of chocolate and light roasted malts, vanilla, coffee, some sweet malts, and light dough. Flavor the same. Average texture. A decent beer, a little sweet for my taste. SlovakSniper (5561) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 14, 2016
Arômes de café, de chocolat en sirop et de vanille avec malts rôtis. Intéressant. Les saveurs sont entre la douceur et l’amertume. Enfin de bouche, des fruits foncés se signalent. Dommage que ce soit mince en bouche. Correct. Bebum (1126) - Massachusetts, USA - FEB 12, 2016
Dark copper, clear, tight lace.
Medium body, rather flat mouthfeel, low heat and carbonation, intense roast flavors, long palate.
Dark roast coffee, lactose.
Unimpressive but not unpleasant.
